She is board-certified in Emergency Medicine and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine with an emphasis on Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine. Dr. Burgess has a deep interest in an active lifestyle and optimizing health. She has always been active in athletics and to this day enjoys distance running, swimming, rock climbing, skiing, tennis, yoga, and barre fitness as well as getting outside as much as possible. Her experience with college athletics and multiple injuries leading to long-term pain made her very aware of the importance of balancing the body on both a muscular level and a nutritional level. Early into her medical career, Dr. Burgess became dissatisfied with the lack of education many of her patients and colleagues had regarding the healing powers of nutrition and exercise. She believes that medicine can be very powerful, but the body can also heal many of its chronic ailments if given the proper tools. She uses hormone optimization and nutrition to relieve symptoms of fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety, digestive disorders, and metabolic syndrome as well as weight management and athletic performance. Dr. Burgess’s hobbies includes running, mountain climbing, paddle boarding, swimming, yoga, barre fitness, kettle bells and anything outside!
